To specifically and correctly answer your query your sin would require a comprehensive assessment of this behavior specifically as well as related behaviors, thoughts and other related parameters. May be he has internet addiction, depression, inattention, etc or it may just be an excessive indulgence without a psychiatric diagnosis. However in any case it will serve you and your son well to seek a consultation for comprehensive evaluation. Let the psychiatrist assess him neutrally and non judgementally to arrive at an unbiased opinion. Hope this helps you..
